“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Yes it's just a bell, but seeing it up close gives goosebumps. So much history in this attraction. We went on a weekday and there was quite a few people all trying to take pictures with their families standing next to the bell.

“Best Free Stop in Philly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The line was long, but moved very fast. The staff gave a good presentation on the history of the bell. Worth the stop.

“Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We actually didn't go into the Centre as the queue was miles long, we did get to see the Liberty Bell through a glass window which was great anyway, would have loved to have gone through but time dictated that we couldn't.

“History comes alive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Seeing American history in action is a fun and educational experience for all ages!! I'd recommend everyone do this at least once in their adult lives when they will appreciate it. Probably won't be appreciated by anyone younger than 17 or 18 years old, but definitely should be mandatory for all school children learning about US history.

“worth the stop - it's free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The line can get long (to get through security), but it's worth the wait. Once you are inside it's not as bad.

We were able to get a lot of good photos.

An amazing piece of history.
